Engineer Camp @ Tarleton

Engineer Camp (at Tarleton)

 

 - A large group of area sixth through ninth graders attended Tarleton engineering camp last week. Tarleton’s Denise Martinez and other area educators led students as they built robots, designed mousetrap cars and ran experiments. On the final day, students showed off their projects and tested the strength of popsicle stick bridges they built by hooking a bucket to it and filling it with sand.
